I was told by the admissions director of the school of nursing where i want to go to school that I wouldnt get accepted for fall 2005 because i didnt have a chemistry with a lab... So, the other day I found out this girl got accepted to the same school and she didnt have any algebra or chemistry at all and she got accepted... :angryfire It doesnt make sense....
I could use some encouragement.......
Try not to worry about it. Things happen for a reason. I think you'd be better off finishing the preqs before you get in anyway. That way you will be able to focus on the nursing courses. I always find that when things don't go the way I want them it's for a good reason that I hadn't thought of. God takes care of us that way. He does what's BEST for us!:)

I agree with the post above. I too have seen this in the past at my school. Seems that if you know someone in a really good position there, they can tweek thinks to their benefit. Take the Chem as soon as you can and apply again. Good luck to you. :)

Can you try other schools???
IF this is exactly the story (and I don't know truly what the selection criteria were) it does NOT bode well for you if you DO go to nursing school there. Think about that.
I'm sorry that happened to you.
Maybe this person had special circumstances where they could get around that??

I to am sorry things like this happen, its not fair at all. I'm not sure where the information came from but maybe this girl had some combination of science courses that were equivelent or higher level than the chem with lab course that you need.
Dont know,, just was trying to think of a logical explaination. I dont like to think that schools actually favor people for no good reason or slide people in that dont have qualifications. I know there are probly instances where they do, but instead of looking at it like that i rather like to think we all have the same chances. I know Rose colored glasses maybe, but..... Keep going, youll get there.
If someone else got in without the prereqs, that might look unfair, but it could be that it's unfair to HER. I can't imagine trying to take A&P or microbiology without having the chemistry knowledge to make sense of it all.
i know things sometimes look unfair but as a rn who took her nursing classes as well as a chemistry class and a microbiology class after i was accepted into the program. :uhoh21: you are better off in some ways. but the rules should be applied straight across the board with entrance requirements.
i did fine, but if you can it will be much less stressful without all those hours. i carried 20 hours one semester , kept a 3.5 average but it about killed me.
my school found that alot of the students couldn't handle prereqs plus nursing classes and stay in and make the 80% minimum on our tests and classes, we lost some girls and guys that way. perhaps your program has changed the rules for that reason.. i made it but i was so stressed out . take your time, hang in there and you will make it in, and then you can put your all into your nursing classes. :) good luck..

Do the CLEP exams still exist? I got advance placement with algebra, latin and history. That was in a Galaxy long ago and far, far away though. While in college along with the nursing courses we all had to take Chem w/ lab, organic w/lab, anatomy w/lab and micro w/lab. How can you have a Chem without a lab?
Anyway I second the thought to try more than one school while you are taking the required lab.
Yep CLEP are still around.
There are only 2 nursing schools near me. The one is a community college with 900 or more applicants and only 90 seats... The other one is a hospital diploma program.. I applied to both...
I had a chemistry with a lab in high school but they dont count it cause all we did was watch a video of people disecting stuff...
Thanks for the advice I really do appreciate it.. :)
